Default Rear suspension links?

Help calling all gearheads! I need to know the part number and how to change the rear control arm links. Dont really know the technical term for them, but they are the links attached from the bottom shock mount and travel inward and meet in the middle. They have a ball joint on one end. I am in bad need of replacements as mine are litterlly about to fall off. I have a horrible shake anywhere above 20 kmh. also does anyone know of rear shocks without air-assist that will work?

Thanking you all in advance
TheKaddyKid

Cheers

Check at Auto Parts Fast at RockAuto for struts. They will list what will work.

Is this the part your talking about? That'* the rear stabilizer. You can get new bushings from most auto parts stores. You can get a universal bushing, or you can get them from rockauto as well.

You may be talking about the lateral arm. Go to GM parts direct and look at the illustration. They dont show the tie rod end as a separate item. Earlier Bvilles had a replaceable end on them, but I cant seem to find anything but the arm for around 80 bucks or so. Cheap GM parts shows the tie rod end separately, but doesn't give you the ability to order it, as far as I can tell.

The only thing I can see in the rear suspension that has a ball joint would be a rear alignment link. Kinda like a rear tie rod. Prt# 25954973 per gmprtsdirect.com. Their price= 64.98

This is what you need? I'll try to make up a write up on replacing it.

Old thread but quick question. Is GM (such as GM Parts Direct) the only place to get the lateral arm, no after market? Mine has started clunking at the bushing near the middle of the car.
